Sustainable farming in the heart of the Extremaduran pastures
The Iberian pigs are reared on extensive farming in the heart of Extremaduran pastures.
The pigs feed 100% on cereals and all the resources offered by the pasture, such as acorns. At the same time, being a traditional extensive livestock farming, the animals are always free, which promotes animal welfare, resulting in the quality of the product.
At the same time, farms are sustainable, with a maximum of 8 animals per hectare, which avoids overloading the system, respects the pasture's own ecosystem and minimises the erosion.
The pigs are slaughtered when they are at least 12 months old, once they have a high level of muscle development and therefore a higher meat yield.
Feed, breed and age are certified by Traza y Control.
